That was me, yesterday. And I only did it because I was afraid that they would poke through my shoes and then I'd have to buy new ones, wasting more time and money.
It was one of those days. I wanted, no I needed, to get so many things done. On top of the usual Mammy things of course.
So yesterday I...
...Went for a run. It's essential for carers to be fit and strong you know.
...Washed my hair. I also believe that it's a human right to be able to wash your hair at least once a week, Irish Water take note. I tried to embrace the idea of the wavy frizzy natural look. That only lasted until bedtime when I set the alarm extra early so I could straighten it in the small hours.
...Ordered more nappies.
...Followed up all emails and phone calls.
...Checked the finances and chased up a outstanding payments. Again.
...Baked healthy muffins.
...Hoovered and shampooed the hall, stairs and landing carpet.
...Researched new options for getting a July Provision Tutor for Smiley (a replacement for the school summer camp that will be only one week now, leaving me 8 weeks to fill)
...Shopping in Lidl
...Home educated my son.
...Sought advice from my lovely Facebook friends, and made arrangements to tackle the reasons why I was home educating my son.
...Kept pushing ahead with the 'Ten burpees every time you fancy a chocolate bar' diet. I invented it, based on a video I saw on twitter recently. It's quite effective, and I can guarantee you won't want to eat anything for a while after each set of 10! I haven't actually tested it in the supermarket though..
But life got in the way, as usual.
Some things didn't get done.
...No progress on getting a new credit card or passport, which means less expenditure (good) and being unable to attend an overseas funeral (upsetting).
...Booking medical, dental and eye appointments.
...Changing that light bulb. Only remembered after dark. As usual.
...Tackling the in-tray.
...Finding a cookery course for teenagers. My son's choice of summer activity. All ideas welcome!
...Work out ways to save money, water, power, energy, and anything else the Government thinks of taxing!
...Mend all the broken things around the house. Unless we have visitors I actually forget that it's not normal to switch on a cooker using a screwdriver...
Ah well, today is another day. And at least I now have neatish toenails.
